Packers To Interview Mike Pettine For DC Job

Former Browns head coach Mike Pettine will interview for the Packers’ defensive coordinator job on Tuesday, a league source tells Adam Schefter of (on Twitter). Pettine becomes one of five known candidates in the running for the gig, as shown on PFR’s Coordinator TrackerMike Pettine

Pettine spent last year as a defensive consultant for the Seahawks. In the fall, it was said that he would be one of Matt Nagy‘s top choices for defensive coordinator if he were to land a head coaching job. Now that Nagy is in Chicago, it’s possible that Pettine could wind up as a candidate for two different jobs in the same division.

Pettine first made a name for himself as a key defensive coach on the Ravens’ staff. When Rex Ryan left Baltimore for the Jets, he brought Pettine along as his DC. After a stint as Buffalo’s DC and Cleveland’s head coach, he’s once again a candidate for a coordinator job.

    Wouldn’t mind this hire if the bears DC turns us down. Just someone OUTSIDE the org please!

      Would still prefer Fangio but this guy had some outstanding Jets defenses when he was there. Not a bad candidate at all

    • HAVE to go outside the org. HAVE TO! If McCarthy stays in-house, he should be fired….screw the one-year extension he just got.
